SHIMMER Champion Mercedes Martinez Joins Savoy and Baszler at RISE 1!


Announced during our Live YouTube broadcast September 28, the events of RISE 1 – IGNITE just got a little bit more interesting. We already knew “Queen of Spades” Shayna Baszler and Heart of SHIMMER Champion Nicole Savoy were competing on the Live Event Thursday, November 10.

But, what we did not know is just last night details were confirmed that will in fact bring SHIMMER Champion and SHIMMER Original “The Latina Sensation” Mercedes Martinez to the Chicago area a day early to meet up with her squad!

Though Martinez will not be competing in a match at RISE 1, she has made it very clear she will do, “whatever my girls need me to do.” What this might mean to fans in attendance, and more importantly, the prospective talent pool is unknown. We will all find out November 10.

Mercedes Martinez will be appearing alongside Baszler and Savoy at out Meet and Greet, open to ticket-holding fans of RISE 1 – IGNITE only. The Meet and Greet starts at 6:30 PM prior to RISE 1’s bell time of 8 PM. All valid tickets will allow early entry for this portion of the event.

The Meet and Greet will offer a very unique opportunity. RISE will be offering in-ring photographs that can be taken with Martinez, Baszler and Savoy individually for $15 or with the entire group for $40.

Where else can you get a picture taken, in-ring at that, with so much representation of top shelf talent from the US independent women’s wrestling scene? Between the three, six major women’s wrestling titles are currently held. Baszler is the reigning Premier Wrestling Women’s Champion and AIW Women’s Champion. Savoy holds the AWS Promotions Women’s Title, Pro Wrestling Revolution World Women’s Championship and the Heart of SHIMMER Championship. With Mercedes at the helm as SHIMMER Champion, that is, without a doubt, some of the best women’s wrestling talent you will find anywhere at one time, all ready to take a photo with YOU!

As of press time, only seven Front Row tickets remain. Front Row tickets are $10, General Admission $5. Both available now at The Shop.

What does this trio being present in its entirety mean to the rest of the talented women of RISE 1 – IGNITE? We’ll just have to wait to find out.
